Yes, Heavy Metal is definitely the best place for this. For this is a tribute song for the great musicians who are the reason why metal is what it is now. Quorthon, Dimebag, Chuck Schuldiner, many, many unlisted people (because I am just way too lazy to start out with that :P).

So, a short instrumental with acoustic guitars. I had an idea of having vocals but I think it's better like this. Unspoken words.

Stay metal.

Well done.

This definitely speaks of nostalgia. It's melancholy, but also beautiful and touching. Thank you for posting it.

Soothing and somber...

I must second PolishMatt's review, I couldn't agree more. (Having a soft spot for instrumental work in general.)

I do so believe this composition is a befitting tribute to metal musicians- the mood is perfect. As well, this is a good change of pace- I really like the variety of your body of work!

great song man

i love pantera and i really appreciate that you did this song
and this for all the great musicans that make fucking great music
and who don't understand this just don't wote zero, stop being gey
stay heavy man \m/


It was a good move to not use vocals, it usually ruins songs and this way the listener can make up any of his own words to it. Some nice playing here, even if it wasn't some insane shredding sweeps and all that jazz.


Pretty great show of guitar solo. The tension keeps the listeners wondering what's going on next. The more I listen, the more I disclose the meaning of the song. Honestly, this'd fit nicely for films. Wonderful job.

Thanks alot :D Most likely I will be doing this stuff to some films in near future.
